Is it possible to eat normally, five days a week, and become slimmer and healthier as a result? Simple answer: yes. You just limit your calorie intake for two nonconsecutive days each week - 500 calories for women, 600 for men. You’ll lose weight quickly and effortlessly with the FastDiet.

I started the Fast Diet on Jan. 5th 2014 so it's been just over a year now. I have found it to be the easiest diet I've ever been on. I could never stick with any diet for more than a few months before and I've tried everything else in my life. I'm 57 and have been on and off of diets since my 30's. Always ended up gaining the weight back plus more. I can truly say this is something I can do for the rest of my life! I have lost 31 lbs which doesn't seem like a lot but everyone thinks I look like I lost 50-60 lbs. Unfortunately I didn't take measurements like they suggested but I wish I had because the difference in inches would be much more impressive. I feel like I have kept all of my muscle which weighs more so maybe that's why I look like I have lost so much more. The lesson here is if you decide to try this take the measurements first. I used to be a size 16. Now I am 10-12 depending on the brand of clothes. There is no measuring or constantly obsessing about food every day. Two days a week I stick to 500 calories. The other 5 days I don't think about it at all and just eat whatever I want. I did not exercise at all! I'm thinking I will add exercise now since I feel so much better. I only plan on losing another 10 lbs. I don't know how long it will take but I'm not worried about it because I plan on doing this for the rest of my life. Once I lose that last 10 lbs. I will begin the maintenance phase of only one fast day. I will say that in the beginning it's a little hard but I listened to the book every fast day for the 1st six months and that helped a lot! Each time I listened I picked up on something I missed that would give me encouragement and motivation. I still enjoy listening to it again occasionally. Bottom line is TRY THIS AND DON'T GIVE UP!! IT GETS MUCH EASIER!!

Tami Hoag, author of Dust to Dust, returns with "a definite winner," says Booklist. In a trailer in a Florida swamp, time is running out for Erin Seabright. A pawn in a kidnapper's terrifying game for a ransom no one can pay, her last hope is a washed-up ex-cop who has already lost it all - not once, but twice.

Graphic descriptions of torturing & murdering horses. I wasted a credit on this one.
